Neither I nor my party involved in Saradha issue: Mukul Roy
Trinamool Congress all-India General Secretary Mukul Roy, who was interviewed by the CBI in connection with the Saradha chitfund investigation, on Sunday said neither he nor his party was involved in any way with the scam. “I reassert both as a person or as a party custodian that neither I nor my party is involved in the Saradha issue in any way,” Roy, also a Rajya Sabha MP, said here.
Campaigning for Mamata Bala Thakur, TMC candidate for the Bongaon Lok Sabha seat, the senior Trinamool leader said, “Whenever elections come, the Saradha issue crops up. It started during the panchayat elections in 2013.” “The same happened before the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and now it has cropped up again,” Roy said, claiming it was a motivated and mischievous campaign to malign his party. Stating that he was grateful to the people of Bengal, Roy said, “I saw the love and anxiety of the people of Bengal for me the day the investigating agency called me.” Claiming that the designs of opposition parties in the state would not be successful, the TMC leader said.
